Featured Interview

Duncan MacRae, Senior Publisher of the journal Medicine published by Wolters Kluwer, played a major role in transitioning the journal from a subscription-based model to an open access publication. Duncan’s primary focus is on introducing efficiencies in journal workflow systems to revitalize editorial operations and implementing new technologies into the editorial workflow. In this interview, Duncan describes the workflow of Medicine and how it transitioned to open access, as well as similarities and differences between open access and subscription-based publishing models. Duncan shares an interesting perspective about mega-journals, which have lesser restrictions and can offer authors help with post-publication promotion. He goes on to share his observations of what authors, publishers, and editors think about open access today.
